CSC has come a long way in providing the growing population of Chinatown Youths with programs that guide them towards positive endeavors and further them in their development as confident and contributing adults. In August of 2001, CSC formally opened a Youth Center facility across the street from our main offices, in order to give youth a place of their own. This comprehensive Youth Center is a place where youth can come to develop leadership skills, enrich themselves educationally, and empower themselves economically and politically in order to improve their own community. The Youth Center also provides a much-needed space in Chinatown for youth to hold weekly social events, as there was no such venue in Chinatown for youth to gather at prior to this.

The CSC Youth Center provides an array of workshops and activities. They center mainly on preparing our community’s youth both for higher education, for entering the workforce and for community involvement. Current CSC Youth Center programs include:

  • Academic Mentoring – Youths get assistance on schoolwork and have computer access to research for their paper, to assist them to be successful in school and prevent them falling behind and end up dropping out of school. 

  • Volunteer Opportunities – Youths participate in different local community events, such as sorting food at a regional food bank, cleaning the beach, to assist them to gain service learning experience.

  • Pre-employment Workshops – Youths learn required skills necessary in obtaining and keeping a job including resume writing, interviewing skills, career planning, and working with employer expectations.

  • College Preparation – Provide workshops to help youths write personal statements for college, understands the recruitment process, prepare their applications and receive assistance with financial aid.

  • Leadership Development @ Los Angeles Chinatown Youth Council (LACYC) – Youths take an active role in determining the guidelines for the Youth Center, and in planning and hosting social and recreational events; planning education and pre-employment workshops.

  • Projects such as:

  • (1). Bridging the Gap which enables local youth to learn about and appreciate the major Chinese and Latino cultures in the area. The goal is to have our youth to reach out to Latino youth and promote working together.

  • (2). Student producers of and with the KCET Departures: Chinatown interactive documentary series, learning how to use multimedia tools for self exploration.

We are thankful for First Republic Bank generous donation support of $5,000. This fund will help to provide tutoring and mentoring to youth that are under performing in school.

Thank you to Wells Fargo Bank and Southern California Edison International continue funding CSC Youth Center’s Academic Mentoring Program within this fiscal year. The funds allowed us to help students take a step closer to building a firm foundation of success in school. Our participants were able to improve their grades by more than one letter grade in at least two of their subjects. Their classroom behavior improved significantly as well; cooperation and work habits increased from “unsatisfactory” to “satisfactory” or “excellent.
